    Default This kind of “Christian” abuse must be stopped!

    Currently, 32 states, including Idaho, provide a religious defense to felony or misdemeanor crimes specifically against children, including neglect, endangerment and abuse, according to state statutes compiled by Children’s Healthcare Is a Legal Duty (CHILD), a national advocacy group. There are 38 states that provide religious exemptions in their civil codes on child abuse and neglect, which can prevent Child Protective Services from investigating and monitoring cases of religion-based medical neglect and discourage reporting.

    The lure of the pseudoscientific vocabulary and promises of dianetics cannot but condemn thousands who are beginning to emerge from scientific illiteracy to a continuation of their susceptibility to word-magic and semantic hash.

    Preventing anyone from getting medical care or physically abusing anyone, regardless of age, should be a crime.

    Can This Sheriff Change Idaho’s Deadly Faith-Healing Law?
    April 19, 2017 by David G. McAfee

    Some say more children die in Idaho due to faith-based religious neglect than in any other state, but Canyon County Sheriff Kieran Donahue is working to change that, calling the situation “an embarrassment” to the state.
